What is Wellness Travel?

Wellness travel is not new - people have been traveling with health or wellness as the primary focus since the time of the Roman Baths. Today, the typical wellness vacation or retreat often consists of an all-inclusive package with accommodations, healthy meals and fitness, or other wellness-related activities.

Now more than ever, vacations are vital to our wellbeing. Studies have shown that stress, blood pressure, and the risk of having heart attack are all reduced following a vacation.

Wellness Travel allows you  to maintain, enhance or kick-start a healthy lifestyle, and support or increase your sense of wellbeing.

A Wellness Vacation is typically self-directed, with you setting your own timeline and schedule. You could also consider wellness retreats.

A Wellness Retreat can be a place or an event. Small, intimate facilities with accommodations and hospitality services offer programs and experiences. Guided, multi-day programs that may include lifestyle workshops, such as meditation and healthy eating, as well as fitness activities, are also an option.

A Wellness Resort is any facility with accommodations and a range of hospitality services where the primary purpose is to provide programs and experiences. A wellness resort will have four primary elements: accommodations, a variety of wellness activities, healthy dining options, and wellness-related facilities.


A Wellness Destination is a geographical area that promotes wellness as an integral part of life within the community and economics of the region. It is used to identify a region that has a strategic approach to develop and market its wellness-related assets.

Types of  Wellness Travel Experiences

Wellness can be incorporated into any vacation whether you're staying at a resort or on a cruise. In fact, many cruise lines are beginning to add wellness options to their offerings.
